BoxLotto Exposed — Promotional Site Dressed Up as a Free Lottery

Nick Silver
Last updated on August 31, 2015
post thumbnail – Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing! is initially a little confusing. It’s a online lottery site that offers one lottery game free. I can’t figure out how these guys are making money then again, information is money. Though they claim that ‘your Information will not be given, sold, rented or loaded to any third party’ it looks like it happens. is owned by Audie Johnsen and operates under a US address in California.

BoxLotto’s Game is not the place to find UK Thunderball, Oz Powerball or any other international lotteries.  It really is more of a sweepstakes offering a weekly free draw based on the results of the New York Lottery numbers drawn every Wednesday. The maximum prize is $250,000 for 6 numbers guessed, with 5 numbers providing $250, 4 numbers at $2 and 6 free tickets and 3 numbers gets 3 free tickets. Players simply select their numbers, provide an email address and check to see if they’ve won.

See our Recommended & Approved Lottery Ticket Sellers.

Official Rules at

In reviewing the official rules of, I hit my first snag. They say “Participation constitutes entrant’s full and unconditional agreement to and acceptance of these Official Rules. Entries for Tuesday Night Drawing are accepted between 8:01 pm CST Wednesday and 8:00 pm CST Wednesday.” Okay, is it Tuesday or Wednesday.

Who Gets To Play

The next snag was this game is only offered to Australia, Canada (excluding Quebec), Ireland, RSA, UK and USA residence 18 years and older. There are a bunch of other ‘voids’ and ‘ineligibles’  and ultimately ‘all entries are limited to English speaking Internet users to ensure fairness to our weekly sponsors‘. Bingo and I don’t mean I just won.

I realized that these guys at make their money by being paid by other people. I guess they don’t get paid for people who play who don’t speak English.’s Customer Support

There is an online form people can complete for customer support as well, there is also an email address, telephone number (though no indication when someone will be there) and snail mail address. There is an FAQ which has a bunch of information but it still leaves a person wondering, what am I doing here! There are no fees to be paid, hence no payment options. I guess this could be a good reason that there aren’t a lot of complaints.

BoxLotto Complaints’s Home page has a place to click to read ‘Fraud Alert’ on the right hand site. They are upfront here on issues that pertain directly to their reputation.

The first one is a warning regarding receiving letters in the mail saying you have won a large sum of money from Box Lotto out of Canada. Well firstly these guys aren’t out of Canada so most people should stop right there. It’s the usual scam where they send you a check but require a person to wire to a location the taxes payable. Of course by the time the wire has gone through, people find out that the check is counterfeit.

We have also come across players who had been participating for a while but had never won any money [].

So, What’s the Catch at

What still isn’t clear is, it appears that doesn’t actually share or provide your personal details to third parties or affiliates but your clicking on links does. It’s a gray area, enough that we do suggest people proceed with caution before they begin inputting this information.

Serious Player or Not – Would You Play Here?

It is hard to imagine serious players either expecting to win for playing for free or opting to even participate in a site which offers just one choice of lottery. Even the maximum prize money of $250,000 does not offer much encouragement when compared to prizes offered by the major players in online lotteries.

The Bottom Line about

This looks like a promotional site dressed up as a free online lottery option.


pros It’s Free


cons Probably Sells Your Personal Details
cons Lack of Information
cons Limited to English Speakers

For people who genuinely want to play lotteries online, this is not the place to go. We give it a thumbs down!

    Luke C – I’d love to hear how they respond and/or if you do win anything with these guys. I’d also be interested in hearing if you do get a heap of spam participating with as I am under the impression this is more a marketing site then a lottery site. Thanks for any further info you share! Nick

  5. Prasad

    I am from India. Is it possible to play box lotto free from India?

  6. Nick Silver

    Sorry Prasad, can only be played “ELIGIBILITY: This promotion is offered only electronically via the Internet and is open to Australia, Canada, Ireland, New Zealand, South Africa, United Kingdom and United States residents at least 18 years and older This promotion is void in the Providence of Quebec. Residents of New York and Florida can play and are eligible to win up to the maximum amounts allowed by their individual state laws. Void where prohibited. Principals and employees of Box Lotto and its respective parents, affiliates, subsidiaries, and immediate family members of each are not eligible. We ask that all entries be limited to English speaking Internet users only to ensure fairness to our weekly sponsors.”

    But keep in mind that it appears that along with the free play, your details can be shared/sold to weekly sponsors. Basically, nothing is free and if you’re looking to play lotteries, I strongly recommend you look at our recommended lottery service providers! Good luck with your play. Nick

    Boxlotto is a great site, you pick your numbers up to 30 tickets then watch New York lotto draw, wow if you match you win $250,000 in 20 year installments, no catch, so why do you make them look bad? p.s i’ve won the lesser prizes and they sent the money.


    Thank you very much for your timely exposes that saved me. Please let provide me the list of Genuine Lotteries to play that are both cash-pay type and free-lottos, which I can play from India and UAE

    Hello Nick,
    My name is Dylan and I am a Aussie. I have been playing at boxlotto for about 2 months and I am really satisfied with it as I hit 6 numbers and had successfully received the money in a week and I also know how they earn money. Step 1 you enter the details and decide your 6 numbers and then click play and then you get redirected to a advertising page and that’s how they earn money and the also use Google advertising schemes and systems.
    I feel really lucky that I won the money and I am building a $50000 hardcore gaming machine!!!!
